Party Pop!

Monday, May 15, 2017

Eleven months ago, I got an email from Amanda, the owner of Stash Builder Box, asking if I would like to design an exclusive quilt pattern for their monthly subscription boxes. Of course I wanted to be a part of the fun!

Fast forward almost a year, and it's finally time to share my quilt! Meet Party Pop!

Party Pop is an exclusive pattern, only available as part of the June Stash Builder Box. Stash Builder Box is a monthly subscription box where you get one yard of three different fabrics, a spool of Aurifil thread, a signature pencil, and an exclusive quilt pattern. And they use 20% of all subscription fees to buy supplies to make quilts for charity! Read more about Stash Builder Box on their website.

Aurifil thread in Natural White and random loop quilting was the perfect finishing touch for this quilt! It's such a fun quilt! The quilt finishes at 54" x 66" - a great throw size!

As it so happens, May is also the month for the Modern Batik Challenge for the Island Batik Ambassadors! So this quilt counts as a two-fer!

Party Pop is made with a rainbow assortment of Island Batik fabrics from their precut Stash Builder packs (doesn't that name sound familiar??). The Island Batik Stash Builder packs have twenty 5" x WOF strips. They are perfect for getting an assortment of fabrics - and perfect for making Party Pop!

For the background fabric, I used Island Batik Sprinkles. It's a fantastic neutral fabric that reads as white, but provides more interest than a solid.

Party Pop has the look and feel of an improv quilt, but is constructed using strip piecing and a specific layout diagram. This allows for the same "random" look to be achieved every time you make the quilt!

I think Party Pop would make a great quilt for every occasion worth celebrating! With the help of EQ7, I've shown a *few* different color combinations below. Wouldn't the quilt make a great high school or college graduation gift in your school's colors? Several of the color combinations I've chosen here are also the favorite colors of friends and even their wedding colors! I think the quilt looks great with just one color for the strips, with two colors, and with lots of colors! I want to make them all!

And if you miss out on getting a Stash Builder Box this month, watch for the pattern to be released on it's own this summer!
